On Friday, MAPPA released the a new trailer for its upcoming Chainsaw Man anime, which will launch in October. Crunchyroll will also replicate Chainsaw Man in the United States, as it has done for other MAPPA anime in the past, including Jujutsu Kaisen and Attack on Titan Final Season 2.
Makima, one of the series' main characters flanked by two Devil hunters, as she enters a warehouse filled with mutilated bodies, before progressing into a montage of Denji, who now stands guard against attacks and breaking Devils with his chainsaw hands.
Denji, a teenage orphan living in a world populated by Devils, supernatural creatures born out of human fears, is followed by Tatsuki Fujimoto's critically acclaimed and ultra-violent action-horror manga.
Denji is forced to work as a Devil hunter to pay back the debt owed by his father's absence. Denji meets Pochita, fusing the creature with his dying heart to form Chainsaw Man, a frighteningly powerful Devil-human hybrid who can summon chainsaws from his body.
The first part of the manga, the Public Safety arc, which ended on December 14, 2020, is planned in the anime. The second arc of the Chainsaw Man manga has just begun, with new chapters published every Tuesday and available to read on Shonen Jump.
